The British extreme metal icons from Carcass will return to the United States once again this October/November.
Joining them on select dates are Florida death metal legends Obituary and the eclectic champions of “murder metal," Macabre. Death grinders Exhumed and newcomers Noisem will open each night of churning insanity as well.
“We thought it would be cool to go off the beaten track a bit and play some places that usually get overlooked,” commented Carcass frontman Jeff Walker. “We figure some of the tumbleweeds needed blowing away. Pretty chuffed to have managed to get our pals Obituary to come along on these dates. As anyone who has seen them recently will testify they're tearing it up live nowadays!”

The West Coast gore hounds in Exhumed will take to the streets this Fall on another rash of live incursions with extreme metal technicians Carcass and manic death thrashers Noisem.
Slated to kick off on October 24th in San Diego, the Inked In Steel Tour 2014 will trample nearly two dozen cities with additional sonic devourment from death metal legends Obituary and Macabre on select dates.
From there the band will march overseas for more onstage devastation with Aborted, Origin, and Miasmal. See confirmed shows below.
Comments Exhumed's Matt Harvey: "We've been enjoying a rare few months of quiet in the Exumed camp, but we're finally emerging from the death metal equivalent of cryo-sleep to make some noise again. We're totally psyched to be back out amongst all you mutants and maniacs again for some beers, laughs and our usual brand of heavy metal mayhem. It'll be great to worm our way back into your little black hearts. We couldn't ask for a better tour package than with Carcass and Obituary, and our solo dates will allow us to unleash a full spectrum of stuff onstage - more songs, more production, more Marshall cabinets. It's gonna be a blast (beat). See you fuckers there! Bring beer!" More...

Iconic death metal outfit Origin will return to Europe for a 31 date tour throughout 15 countries in September and November. Side to side with Aborted, Exhumed and Miasmal, the U.S. metal giants will invade The Old Continent for the first time since 2012's crusade with Suffocation. The band commented:
"Some bands are just made to tour together! This November, Origin has the pleasure of going out with two bands that we have toured with in the past, Aborted and Exhumed. It's always a treat for any band to link up with old friends that they have shared the road with…as long as it was a good time! We have had great times on the road with both bands. Aborted, 2 years ago, and Exhumed wayyyyyy back 14 years ago! All on one bus, one big mess of psychopaths howling at the moon! If the bands are getting along and having a good time, then the shows for the friends and fans are going to be that much more ripping. This tour is going to positively melt faces. I've heard people say 'Hell, I'm over Europe' .....but not me, because this is HELL OVER EUROPE! With Exhumed and Aborted!"

Oregon punk metal ruffians Toxic Holocaust will unite with California gore tacticians/labelmates Exhumed for a North American bout of live abrasions this Winter.
The chaos will prevail on January 22nd in Seattle and wind its way through seventeen cities before coming to a mutinous close February 9th in Sacramento. Special guests include Ramming Speed and Mammoth Grinder. The journey precedes the previously announced Toxic Holocaust and Exhumed European invasion set to commence February 22nd.
Comments Toxic Holocaust's gravel-throated ambassador Joel Grind: "I'm proud to announce our West Coast tour with gore metal maniaxxx, Exhumed. I guarantee no necks will be left un-wrecked after this onslaught of beer, waste and gore!"
Adds Exhumed head mischief maker Matt Harvey, "In our continuing efforts to drive our beloved van into the ground and rack up another several thousand gallons in complimentary beer, we're heading out with our friends in Toxic Holocaust to make some serious noise in 2014. It's shaping up to be a total rager, so come out and rage with us, you won't regret it!" More...
In honor of an upcoming combo assault with hardcore thrash miscreants Iron Reagan, today the gorelords in Exhumed expel a new canticle of chaos in the form of "Gravewalker."
Comments Matt Harvey, minister of diseased death rattles and obscene elegies: "In between our seemingly endless road schedule and recording a new album, we managed to squeak in some time to barf up a couple new tracks and cover songs for this split with our tight buds in Iron Reagan. They're a bit more stripped-down and nasty than the last album [Necrocracy], which was a lot of fun for us. This EP is all about cutting loose and getting down and dirty. We hope you'll join us in the grime and turn out for our week of shows with the Reagans just in time to have one last rager before you spend the holidays with your creepy drunk aunt who keeps touching your face at the table - you know the one I mean! See you mutants on the road!"

Today Exhumed is streaming rarities from the "Necrocracy" recording sessions. Illuminates band member Matt Harvey:
"Just like last time, when we entered the studio to record Necrocracy, our collective cup was runnething over. We knew the record would end up right around 35 minutes, but it wasn't clear just yet which tracks would be destined to end up as bonus material.
"It was a tough call, but 'The Beginning After The End,' and 'Not Yet Dead Enough' ended up as bonus material, as did the outro 'E Pluribus Mortem' that we worked up in the jam room only a few days before recording. We also came up with a short nasty one right before we entered the studio that became 'Chewed Up, Spit Out' and while we were tracking the drums we wrote another blaster, 'Go For The Throat.'
"We were originally trying to get Relapse to do a split of some kind with these two tracks, but it didn't come together and we thought they were too much fun to keep to ourselves, so you can enjoy them here. For those of you wishing we still wrote one minute songs, here you go! Think of Necrocracy as the malignant main dish and these morbid morsels as some superlative side dishes that should enhance your dining experience. Cheers, and enjoy! See you mutants on the road!"
Knee your Monday in the ‘nads with a full stream of "Necrocracy," the latest full-length of filth from West Coast gore weavers Exhumed! You can now check out the full album stream below, courtesy of MetalSucks.net.
"Necrocracy" was recorded at Arcane Digital Recording in Chandler, Arizona with Ryan Butler (Misery Index, Landmine Marathon, Phobia) while the drums were tracked at Trench Studios in Corona, California with John Haddad (Hirax, Abysmal Dawn, Intronaut).
The "Necrocracy" album will be released via Relapse Records in North America on August 6th, 2013, August 2nd, 2013 in Germany/Benelux, and August 5th, 2013 in the UK/world and come available in CD, LP, deluxe LP and digital formats. More...
As West Coast gore crew Exhumed prepares to drop a fifth official studio full-length, "Necrocracy," upon society in two weeks, today the title track of the splatter platter has been exposed through Invisible Oranges. Give the song a listen below.
Stated founding mouth/throat/axe Matt Harvey on the track’s creation: “Not only is this the title track for our new record (duh), it was the first song we finished putting together for the writing process and helped set the tone for the record. It's big, nasty and heavy, like your weird drunk aunt that smells like Funyons and laughs too loud at Thanksgiving dinner. This one has a little of everything, dual geetar action, fist pumping build ups, rapid fire drum fills and all the gore and grime you've come to expect from an exhumed track. Check it out and piss off some neighbors!”
Exhumed's ongoing European Takeover is wrapping up this week, to be immediately followed by an official LA release party for "Necrocrac"y on August 8th. The Fall months will see the bastards hitting the streets again for a month-long North American trek with labelmates Dying Fetus. More...
Today Loudwire is bringing the latest tones of torment from West Coast death grind deviants, Exhumed.
Titled "Sickened," the track is featured on the band’s impending "Necrocracy" full-length. Check out "Sickened" at this location.
Notes Matt Harvey of the tune: “‘Sickened’ is probably our bassist Bodybag Babcock's favorite tune on the record, and may be the thrashiest tune we came up with for the record. It's fast, nasty and while hashing it out in the rehearsal room, we referred to the bridge section as the ‘Bay Area pit starter riff,’ which quickly endeared us to the song.
"We're definitely planning on including this in our live set when we head out with Dying Fetus this Fall, so get your puffy white hi-tops ready to run in a circle at the appropriate moments. Lyrically, this is a nasty little tale with a slight historical twist -- it's basically about getting the bubonic plague, and not just twisted gory fate it brings, but the despair and isolation the disease brought, as our putrid protagonist's contagious condition causes him to be shunned by family and friends. So it's a real upper. Anyway, turn it up, pound a beer, find a friend, and then hit them.”
The full album's track listing is:
1. Coins Upon The Eyes (streaming here)
3. (So Passes) The Glory Of Death
4. The Rotting
5. The Shape Of Deaths To Come
9. Carrion Call
10. The Rotting
